It starts right next to the Duomo and it is made up by four important shopping streets in Milan:

  1. Via Montenapoleone

  3. Via della Spiga
  4. Via Sant'Andrea

Moreover, you can find some interesting shops in Via Torino and Corso Buenos Aires, also in the city center, where you can have shopping still enjoying the enchanting atmosphere that the city has to offer.

Last, but not the least, if you’d rather focus on pure shopping, in order to get the best deals and to choose among a wider selection, we suggest you to visit the designer outlets in Milan, just few kilometres outside the city. 

Shopping tips

Here we have a few useful tips for you to get the best of this sales experience in Milan.

  1. The italian word for sales is “saldi”: look for it on the showcases or on the signs and take advantage of the best deals.
  2. Shopping at the beginning of the season means that you’ll choose among more items, but if you shopping at the end, the price will surely drop. It’s up to you!
  3. The weekends are the worst moment to enjoy some good shopping: if you have the chance, weekdays, in the morning, are the best option.
  4. Do not forget to check for manufacturing defects or holes...if the price of an item is super low, you should be suspicious.


Well, here is a quick overview of the guide for the sales. We wish you to enjoy this unique experience: explore and enjoy the sales in Milan with your international friends and...let’s start the shopping!


See you soon,
